The General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor W.F Kumuyi, has warned members of the church against celebrating Christmas, saying the celebration of Christmas is idolatrous and unscriptural.

Kumuyi warned that doing so is making Christians to go back from the commandment of Jesus Christ.

    "We don’t celebrate Christmas. It actually came from idolatrous background. That is why you don’t hear us sing what they call Christmas carol, Never! We always say it is the December retreat. We are only gathering together because it is the holiday period and love the lord more, and rededicate ourselves more."

The cleric said this on Saturday at the annual national December convention of the church, which held at the church’s camp ground in Ogun State.

He said, “When you find anybody coming in, or any leader, trying to introduce the idolatry of mystery Babylon, that they call Christmas and you want to bring all the Christmas carol saying that is the day that Jesus was born, and you don’t find that in the Acts of the Apostles or in the early church, then you don’t find that in the church either. If you don’t know that before, now you know.”

He warned that any of the church’s leaders that tried to introduce the “idolatry of Christmas” into any section of the church would be sanctioned, while also encouraging other believers in Christ to jettison the celebration as part of their sacrifice to perfection.

Kumuyi said the duty of the church is to make people more like Jesus Christ, not join in worldly celebrations.

“We are not trying to make the church turn like the world. We want it to be like Jesus Christ, and more like the Apostles. If you don’t have that mind with us, then you have permission to go to other places,” he added.
e Jesus Christ, not join in worldly celebrations.

This is not a new story. Christmas, Esther all have pagan origin. They all were the practices in Roman empire long before the coming of Jesus Christ. When Christianity was taken to Rome, Romans could not abandon their pagan cultures and embrace it, that was why some of the major pagan rituals were transformed and infused into Christianity for Romans to accept and adapt it as a religion. I know many Christians will insult me, but, that is the truth.

In a nutshell, Romans were not Christianised but Christianity was ROMANIZED.

Well Jesus was not born on December 25th we all know that, 25th December is a day for Romans' celebration. People don't bother to know what they celebrate. I'm happy that some men of God are getting to know the truth.
